    I followed iClarified's tutorial and created the custom firmware (iPhone1,2_3.1.2_7D11_Custom_Restore). When I open iTunes it says the iPhone is in recovery mode, so I select the custom firmware. iTunes displays "Preparing iPhone for restore...", and it just sits there. Eventually an error pops up in iTunes, "iPhone could not be restored. Unknown error occurred (1604).

    I have already restored to Apple's original firmware (which works fine), then using PwnageTool and the custom firmware three times now, and I keep having the same problem. Also restarted the Mac a number of times as well, just in case.

    What am I missing?

    Yes, opt-clicked the restore button to select the custom firmware.

    Did you Google the 1604 errors ? I think I read you need to put the phone in recovery mode to avoid that or use iRestore. The fix is out there.

    your phone has to be already jailbroken to upgrade to a custom firmwire... if it is jailbroken and you are trying to do it, then idk

    Not with PT 3.1.4. Now works on non-JB phones.
